Homeopet Cough: $14.29


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Adenoids and cough in 3years old

Hi, I need help for my daughte please, she started having ear infection in march, and it was just after she started preschool, every time the pediatrician would give her antibiotics but since she is allergic to amoxicille she has been given something strong and yet just a week or so after stopping the treatment she starts complaining again but except for the fors time no fever or disturbed sleep just some running nose
Last time that she had though in the middle of treatment she started coughing, and I waited then took her to the pediatrician again who said she had nose congestion but clear lungs and said it may be due to allergy and put her on nasal spray and zyrtec for a week, it helped with the congetion but not the cough so I decided it was time to take her to an ENT who said that it was due to infected adenoids and they were causing ear fluids and eventually infection and that it was the same first infection that never really healed,and he suggested that I could either wait a little longer, see how she does or put her on another antibiotic treatment for a little longer or have an adenoidectomy and tubes put in her ear to drain the fluids
I choose to wait but the cough is still there, the couple of past nights it got worser, she wakes up at around 1 am with a severe painfull cough that sounds like a bark aNd she ends up throwing up and urinating on herself from the pression,
I'm taking her to the pediatrician again this afternoon but I dont like that they never did any kind of test on the infection and even the ENT never had an ex-ray dne to confirm his diagnosis
I have ordered Cal Carb from this website few days ago after visiting some forums but it's not here yet and I was wondering if I should still use it or look for something else
Please help me I don't want to keep giving her antibitics and since she is hard of hearing snce birth I'm afraid that these infections that are turning into chronic ones will worsen it and also I don't want her going through surgery and put to sleep again(1st time hearing test at age 6 month and 2nd tear duct clearing at age 1)
Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Calc is a good remedy. You may go ahead with that. If it doesn't work provide more details while reporting back.

1.whether she prefers warm surroundings ie whether she likes to be covered or she prefers cold surroundings and open air.

2.whether she has a mild disposition or an irritable diposition. How is her attitude towards her friends and relatives?

3.What other physical problems, if any does she have.

4.At what time she feels better and at what time does she feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.

5.What do you think is the causative factor for starting her problems.

6.How is her thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?

7.How is the bowel movement? Normal, constipated or loose.

8.Whether the child prefers to move around or prefers to keep still.

It has been almost 2 weeks since I gave my daughter the Cal Carb
She seemed to be improving although I could see that the inside of her nose was still swollen ad red but then yesterday she just started caughing again so I was wondering the doses she got were enough for her or if she needed more of the medicine
Please let me know what to do,my husband is insisting on giving the augmentin a try but if there is a way to avoid it I will be thankful
Thank you

Please repeat calc in the same way. You may repeat at each relapse.

My daughter was born with a sensorial mild to moderate hearing loss and she started wearing hearing aids around the age of 9 months.
I used to take her for evaluation every 3 months and we noticed when she was about 2.5 years that it started getting worser, now she is a moderate to severe and can't do without the aids
Since there was no family history of such problem and the doctors couldn't explain the reason for her being born with it,we do not know how it'll progress and if she will eventually go deaf.
Her doctor is hopeful that this progressive loss is due to her ears growing and so, the loss of energy in the canal (as she explained) and that we have to keep monitoring her every 4 months now until she turns 5 and her ears stop growing.
As you can imagine I do not want to just wait and see, so please tell me if there is anything I can do improve her hearing or at least stabiles it.
Thank you

Please give her three doses of Lycopodium 200 as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Hi Sarah,
hope i can be of some help. My son has been battling asthma and adenoids along with occasional croup(the barking cough) for the past two years.
Like yourself i had been running to the pediatrician which resulted in antibiotic courses every 2-3 months. And then i found this wonderful homeopath. So don't worry Sarah , there is a cure and your daughter will feel better InshAllah.

Before anything else , i'll tell you two meds to get straight away.
1. Ipeca compose drops by schwabe
These are for coughs. and they are miraculous. 10 drops in a teaspoon or so of water.
you can start with a dose every hour , and taper to 4 times a day.
you can give it even after ten mins if your daughter is having continuous cough. then taper it off when the cough subsides. hopefully the attack will subside within 3 doses but sice your daughter has been on such strong antibiotics it could be more.

2. Luffa nasal spray (schwabe if possible)
spray at night so that she breathes through the nose and not the mouth.
breathing through the mouth increases more allergens going through, which increases risks of infections/viral and especially croup (barking cough).

3. get an ultra sonic vaporizer ... it provides cold water mist like a nabulizer. its excellent.

ok now how to treat the adenoids. Do you have access to a homeopath dr?

mine has made drops for my son and in two days the nose gets unclocked and he feels better.

i hope this will help. i know how scary the barking cough attack is, its very dangerous. especially if it triggers an asthma attack.
